Matt arrived in London over twelve years ago and started wandering the streets. Not only to save on tickets but also to get to know the town literary street by street and now it’s all paying off. He received a thorough education in history and art but they don’t teach you at University which king married for love, which queen didn’t like her children, how much they paid for a fresh dead body and which tube station is haunted by a ghost. Therefore Matt is always searching for little know facts about the lives of ordinary Londoners and scandalous details about the Royals present and past to put it in the stories from the streets of London.
As we love creating new and exciting tours, our tours are labours of love. A value we built upon is that we want everyone to be able to attend and enjoy our tours.
As a result we settled on a Free Pay What You Can method (like Radiohead did with one of their albums; they are a band some us hate). This means, barring certain fees like entry into attractions such as the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey (when specified) etc, our walking tours will always be FREE. Should you enjoy our tours and be able to, we wish to encourage you to tip or make a donation of any amount you like to our guides so we can continue to create wonderful tours. We are, however and unfortunately, not funded by governmental or private organisations, or local councils. Any tips or donations you are able to make will help us to create and offer more tours and grow. We also want people to know that save for superbly terrible weather, travel conditions or circumstances beyond our control, all of our tours will always run.
One of our specialities is creating tailor made tours. A venture we are currently working on that ties into our founding values is called Equal Opportunity Tours. These tours aimed at providing tours for families or groups that have members who may have auditory or mobility impairments. We are working on creating tours and versions of some of our current tours that are 100% accessible to people with mobility issues and tours including sign language interpreters for people with auditory impairments.
We believe that this will open the wonders of London to everyone.
